short recap

I haven't blog for 2 and a half weeks already and frankly, I don't even know why. The enthusiasm that once motivated me to document my life and views as much as possible has, to put it bluntly, faded...I don't want to stop blogging, and I still got tonnes of topic to blog about...damn, I AM addicted to ASTRO......

Here's a recap of the past 2 weeks:

10/9 - returned safely from Liverpool, arriving at 10.15pm.

11/9 - helped Pei Wern got her stuff from KLIA as her flight was delayed from Dubai for 10 hours.

12/9 - went back to Alor Gajah to visit grandpa.

14/9 - sent out a few job application through Still waiting for a reply. (yes I know it's tough)

16/9 - went back to Alor Gajah again to fetch grandpa back home coz he was sick. Stayed at home for a week.

17/9 til' 26/9 - continue to slack at home...

Other details I can't remember...probably spent the days watching TV and playing video the life of the potato couch......

I ringed up some friends to give them a simple hello-I'm-back-from-Liverpool greetings, though I have yet to met them...probably after getting a job first......

There's a possible interview next week at Teik Teng's company, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Last trip, Anfield

Another week pasts by since my last post on Merdeka...cleared all the exams and submitted all the courseworks....

I am officially a free man now :P

Went to Anfield today, the Liverpool football club stadium, on a trip organized by the university.

We arrived the stadium at about 11.2oam, but have to wait til' 12pm to get inside. We went into the Red Suite first to get a glimpse of the European Cup that Liverpool won last year. Too bad that after the group pic they quickly ushered us out to let another group in, I didn't get to take a one on one pic with the cup...but what the heck....

Later we went into the museum to have a tour on the history and bla bla bla...and after 20 minutes of rushing through the museum there's the souvenir shop...not much of a football fan anyway, so didn't buy anything...

1pm, we had lunch at the Paisley was just Indian rice with spices and veges...ugh...better than nothing.....we quickly ate and left the stadium, they didn't allow us into the field area, and I overheard rumours that the team is in training...damn it......

Took the coach back and reached Marybone at about 2.00pm...Glyn suggested the day before that we go for a we went to this pub, the Thomas Rigby, located near the town hall, and got ourselves half-drunk...

Almost all lecturers who taught us were there...Dr. Bill Janvier, Dr. David Lewellyn-Jones, Dr. Bob Askwith, Mr. Andy Laws, Ms. Jennie McWilliams, Mr. Glyn Hughes...and even the research assistant Ms. Ruth Thompson.

Everyone was quite emotional and the atmosphere was sentimental, coz' it's our last day at Liverpool...some are flying back home tomorrow, some are going on the Euro trip, and some just wanna have more fun staying in the UK.

Well, here's a pic of the whole course in the pub...I'll always remember the times here in Liverpool...It's definitely one of the best experiences of my life.

Cheers mates! CMS forever!
